    Hunter plays significantly better when he's not settling for jump shots. He finishes strong in the paint and seems to be able to get to the basket with not that hard of a time. He can be better than a role player but if he stays with that hang outside mentality then I don't know. Nobody said too much about his defense on Culver but he did a pretty damn good job.

    You guys just always overrate the young guys. This draft is weak af. If I’m drafting anything after 5 I’m trading the pick. The value of a pick is much higher than the players you're drafting this year.

    Hunter is bullying guys that are smaller and weaker than him. Not the case in the NBA. Literally the only thing I like about him is his ability to play defense. Can probably guard 3-4. But I guess Hunter is the new hype now. Sorry I’m not drafting a 6th option with the 6th pick. Especially if I have to pay him what 7 mill a year? For a junior with no great skill set? I’m good.

    @addict4sneakers Mitchell was a 2nd round pick. Thabeet was the 2nd overall pick. Huge difference. I’m talking strictly lottery picks.

    @dacomeup you the man, but once again you're not pulling my receipts on my "hot takes" so i pulled them for you....

    The value of a pick is only as much as the value of the players available.

    Teams aren’t going to trade future draft capital for picks outside the top group in this draft, so what’s value, really?

    As it stands now, I think most of us would agree that Culver is far better creating offense with his dribble penetration, while 'Dre looks like the better three-point shooter. Although neither really had significant volume on the year from downtown.

    Which are very, very valuable. I guess if the Sixers were still picking real high in the draft I’d feel differently :lol: but I love it for those Josh Hart/Brogden level role players

    Just finding this thread and checking in.

    Can't help but hope my Hornets deal the pick at this point. I'm not sold on PJ Washington, Rui, or any of the other guys I see that are going to be in that range.

    too many unpolished players coming into the league...

    just because youre 6'7 and can dribble doesnt mean you should be a pro..

    they got 23 year olds who can dunk but cant go left... catch alley oops but cant post up.

    in a league where people get paid milions of dollars on rookie deals most of them dont come out deserving those checks..

    Nobody is trading you anything for your pick.

    Garland and Kevin Porter could be around there and end up being solid guys. Or take a shot at Bol Bol and hope he turns into something.

    Agree on Bacon and Bridges. Actually love Bacon's game.

    And obviously we aren't getting anything for JUST the pick. I'm not unrealistic. Ideally we would package it with Monk and perhaps some other fillers or late picks for something even next year.

    Bridges and Bacon are actually the only two untouchables under contract for next year as I type.
